Flower tea has been in the world for centuries. Each tea brings an exquisite taste as well as effect to one individal with certain health benefits. Ever since i have been exposed to learn about flower teas i have been hooked. I loved the scent, the soothing effect that it gives me and the benefits it provides to me overall.
Although that being said, there are many grades of teas in the market and i sincerely believe that good quality grade premium teas brings you better results and are known to be little and/or free of chemicals. One of my favourite Tea Brands in the market right now are known as Hi-Tea.
Recently, i have tried 5 amazing blooms with their own unique aromatic fragrances of flower tea from Hi-Tea. These are known as Peach Fruit Tea, Lavender, Rosemary, Sweet Osmanthus and Blooming Tea. Each individual flower teas are packed into food graded zip lock bag to ensure its freshness.
My personal favourite are the Peach Fruit Tea and Sweet Osmanthus. They are both refreshing and has a hint of sweetness to it at the same time. Peach tea is known to have a variety of health benefits such as relief from hypokalemia, cancer, obesity and are known to be herbal detoxification. Osmanthus flower tea helps dispels cold and dampness in the body, decrease the mucus caused by inflamed lungs and reduce coughing, treats menstrual pain, as well as regular stomach pain, tooth aches, warms stomach, improves digestion, treats intestinal diseases and reduces the amount of stomach gas, removes many toxins from the body while moisturises the skin.
A personal favourite blend of mine is a mixture of Flower Teas
(Sweet Osmanthus, Lavender and Rosemary).
2g of Lavender + 2 gram of Sweet Osmanthus and 1 gram of Rosemary. This creates a soothing and relaxing fragrance to both the mind and soul with a unique lingering taste on the tastebud.
Blooming tea, or otherwise known as flowering tea, is the combination of green tea leaves and certain flowers. One or more dried flowers are wrapped in bundles of dried tea leaves formed into a bulb shape then set for drying. Other than its unique and refreshing taste, its aesthetic is truly remarkable. The bulb, once put in boiling water, expands and unfurls into something like a blooming flower which is indeed very pretty to watch. It also brings amazing benefits such as improving metabolism, boost brain functions, protects the heart, kills bacteria in the mouth, alleviates stress and more.
